Yes, please do, Pax.

They're a fascinating bird IMO. Never seen one other than photos, but they're colourful and varied so it seems.

Any photos of them chipping away at a trunk? I assume they send the chips flying?

I like all these, but the Red-bellied is really nice
thanks for sharing.

That's it. You hit the nail on the head...plus the fact that I'm quite forgetful. :lol:

This shot is very nice Shalu. I like how the little buggers stole all the good light. and get all the attention of the viewers.:mrgreen:

Thank you for the kind words, Mike!


avondale87 wrote in post #18712495 (external link)
Interesting follow up thanks.
Guess I've done that with offspring myself. They can only crawl all over you for a limited time  :p
Actually the spotlight on the offspring puts it in the typical place. Poor mum is just present, the kids get all the accolades :rolleyes:
Lovely photo.

Thank you, Richard for the nice commentary.

Thanks Richard, sorry I don’t have any with wood chips flying (that would be bad as these trees are in my back yard).

Excellent shot, I’ve never been fortunate enough to get this close to one.
